    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have used one of these to fix a pull in a grenadine tie -- it worked really well.

    Gah, given it another week and I would have had a range of fits to enter, I've got grenadines lined up for my birthday meal and school prom.

    PS Every time I look at @Murlsquirl great fit I get the urge to add a speech/think bubble - "Get off the bike, get off my freakin' bike"!

    Opted to go with a knit and pair it with similarly casual items (unstructured/unlined jacket, OCBD, chambray pants and suede loafers).

    Thanks, Cleav. I opted to not include a bike shot because I figured it wouldn't be fair. How could you not vote for the Barbie bike?

    I normally really like your posts HF, but the brightness of the tie and jacket just seem to be a bit too close for me. It is probably just the photo though.

    I agree with the jacket. To me, at least in one of the pictures, the tie looks to be a comparable brightness to the jacket. It could just be my monitor because my guess is it is supposed to be a forest or darker emerald green.

    A bit nippy in this part of the world, hence the pseudo 3-piece.
